Table 1 Peak value of the ankle angles and velocities (inversion, internal rotation and plantarflexion) were shown in the table below. The lowest row indicates the duration of the ankle sprain injury.

From: Analysis of ankle inversion sprain injury mechanism from accidental injury cases captured in televised basketball matches
